This assignment is to help us learning how to understand a job. I will introduce two jobs which are provided by payscale.com. And all of information is come from that website. My peer of this assignment is Yiwen Chung.
Senior Accounting Manager
The first job I will talk about is Senior Accounting Manager. It is a job that has the average salary of $93,923 per year and almost every senior accounting manager is extremely satisfied with their job. They typically oversees a team of accountants, accounts receivable clerks and accounts payable processors.
Although the salary of this job is considerable, but it does not fit with my major which is computer science. It is not a good choice for me even though it is concerned with computer all the time, because I will not learn things about accounting at the university. People will have higher salary when they have accumulated numerous experiences because two-thirds of senior accounting manager in America are seasoned employees who have more than 10 years of experiences in this field, and it has a wide range of the salary which is from $59,551 to $139,886. This means that it can be a long term job and the income will increase year by year. The job is more suitable for females because the rate of them is greater than males, which is 57%. And, what’s more, accounting manager is also a job that people can be proud of. Their working atmosphere is another element that makes this job so charming to lots of applicants. The daily wearing of senior accounting managers is tie and suit, which looks much better than just a loose T-shirt, and they always seat in a tidy, bright office with all kinds of tools around them. Every company needs talents in this area and people who majored in it can find a job easily after graduate.
Senior Fashion Designer
The second job is Senior Fashion Designer. The salary for this work is not as much as previous one. The average number of its income is $87,235 and the range is from $60,472 to $128,987. People who work on this job are highly satisfied with their job because it provides them sufficient freedoms. Senior fashion designer works in a fast-paced and ever-changing environment in which they must be aware of emerging trend. This job does matter with the computer major and people can use computers to design things they want. However, it is still not a good choice for me because my goal is to working as an application designer or something like that.
Of course the job is well-paid but I think the more freedoms is more important than it. The largest group of people working on this field has 10-19 years’ experience and the rate of them is 45%. People will have highest pay when they have over 20 years career in this area and it is much more than the first 5 years. The job is significant because it will guide the public sight. It will affect peoples’ opinion that how to identify what is the fashion in recent days. Being a good fashion designer is not an easy work and people always need to pay numerous attentions on their job. However, the feedback of their hard working is always worthy.
